Re: Bach 42B M gooseneck

Brad will make almost anything you need, I just received a 42B red brass pipe from him. Call him & ask! Going a little off topic... How do you like the playing characteristics of the red brass pipe vs the original? I personally have not played one to compare it to a stock pipe. I'll have my custome...

Re: Tuning Slide Lube Maintenance

IMHO, the Selmer red crap is good stuff and I use it regularly on my horn & my customer horns.

But any of the horn related lubes work well, but don't fall into the heavier need to keep the tuning slide from moving! That requires an actual fix on the tubes to make them fit right!

Re: Weight of different valves for Bass

I've had problems with my left elbow, and I'm trying physical therapy. I own an ergobone, but everyone I know who has one doesn't use it. It's clunky and inconvenient. I'm working on some modifications to mine to make it easier to switch horns, and less of a hazard to a horn you put it on. Maybe a ...

Re: Weight of different valves for Bass

IMHO, you'd be good to look at an Ergo-bone or similar to reduce or eliminate the weight of the horn from your body. The different rests and braces "might" help, but I strongly feel the best thing is to not have to endure holding the horn at all. Different valves and horns are a very expensive way t...

Re: Working as a Repair Tech

It CAN be very lucrative, but it's not an easy way to get rich, if at all. At least in my experience. Working from home is the hardest part for me, as there's ALWAYS work staring at me when I'm in the garage. While in the bigger scope of things, this is a good problem to have, I don't get the relief...

Re: Fusion Gig Bags

I'm not particularly fond of them. Just my personal opinion.
The bell section can be a pain to insert and trying to reach to the bottom of the accessory pouches is tough.

Seem to be built well and offer good protection for the slide & bell flare though.

The Kranz and tuning slide parts on that horn are solid nickel-silver and not plated, so there's no worry about buffing of the nickel. Also, plain furniture polish works as well for cleaning off the lacquered parts, you don't want to try to "polish" the lacquer as you will cut through to the surface...

I use a black towel on my stand, hides it on the band stand and absorbs the drips AND I don't have to worry about the bell sticking & me lifting the whole thing!
